The decline of the internet

No.86960337 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
How about a serious thread for once /g/

I imagine you being here knows at least what the internet used to be. We are all more or less guilty when it comes to feeding the beast (Google) with our queries, secret wishes and informations. Most still do I imagine.

Now, at one point most users here have stopped feeding it with data and browsing without adblocker is just for new or very old people. In the last couple years tho, Google search results took a) a turn for the worse and b) they've accelerated their gatekeeping.

One used to find some niche forums, homemade web site for topics you searched. It was a magical thing, getting lost while surfing while expanding your own horizon.

Let's talk about the present state:

They've scrubbed sex from their metaresults, which sadly included a lot of nsfw discussions/websites.
They've scrubbed so many small websites from their results just because of "misinformation" - in reality, they were happy to kill them because those small websites refused to install ads on their websites.
It was okay to find your results in page 3 or 7 or 13, but now, while they still show your search queries into 317,000,000 results, once you click through, it ends on pafe 7 and "oh anon, it seems you've reached the end of the results" - fuck you, Google

They had 2 decades to learn what's best for the user, but now they're using that information to completely turn the tables around and refuse to show the good stuff.

In turn, it's pretty disheartening for website owners and for existing communities even more, now that no new users join your forum/site or whatever. When those complain to Google, they get told 'it's in the index' - but that's only true in theory as your search just don't point to the small web anymore.

It's all bigTech.com/YourSite instead of YourSite.com.

And don't get me started on mobile browsing and Google deranking sites which aren't optimized for it.

The internet felt so much bigger 1-2 decades ago and I miss it.

Linux kernel bloat

No.86971097 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Since Linus swallowed the CoC, the Linux kernel has been steadily growing in size
It is now OVER TWICE THE SIZE since Linus sucked in the CoC
>Linux-5.17.7 159.6 MiB
What the actual fuck?
It used to be 69Mb
See for yourself
Is there any hope we will ever have a lean lightweight kernel again?

Hearts of Iron 4 is unironically a better stress test tool than specialized software

No.86972214 ViewReplyOriginalReport
This game that came out in 2016 strains my CPU so hard to the point where it reaches 65c. It takes an hour to progress each year after 1944. I have a fucking i9-12900KS and two RTX 3080s. Unbelievable.

Foodproof mechanical keyboard

No.86971458 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I need to find a mechanical keyboard that is 100% food proof (preferably TKL). I've gone through 2 keyboards in the last 9-ish months alone and the keys on my current one are now starting to get stuck in the down position. As you can tell this shit is starting to get expensive. Any suggestions?

>Keyboard recommendation template

>Where to buy keyboards

Vortex Multix TKL is out, KBT:Re (IBM PCjr lookalike) is almost sold out.
Keychron Q3 is released, but knob version sold out.
Poorfags looking for 75% just buy Nexttime 75.
Keychron Q5 for 96%/full size by the end of april.
No, Ducky, Steelseries, Razer, Corsair, etc. is not good. You are paying for the brand.
